Although the weather shows otherwise (it’s nearly April, do we really need any more snow?!), it is actually coming up to the highly anticipated Spring/Summer season. With boots, tights and thick unflattering coats currently taking up the majority of my wardrobe, I honestly cannot wait to start wearing dresses again, and so – to get us all in the mood (and hopefully, cheer us up a little) I’ve decided to write a little summer-y inspired trends post. And where better to start with than New Look!
I personally have never entered the realm of festivals before (sorry, I can’t deal with all the mud, the camping and the lack of loos) but ‘festival’ wear is one of my favourite trends, so I was pleased to hear that it is back with a vengeance this summer. Rather than just Hunters and hot-pants though, it is much more girlie this year, with cute paisley prints, aztec print boots and chic florals. I can’t wait! To visit the whole collection, click here.
Summer might be more commonly linked to gorgeous pastel colours and floral prints, but surprisingly – this year, the monochrome trend, which has been hugely popular this a/w, will be carrying on and permeating our summers too. Although I am much more of a bright colour lover than a black and white fiend, I do quite like some of New Look’s black and white picks, as they are in keeping with the monochrome trend but still maintain that little summer injection.

Summer and spring-time prints are my all-time favourite trend, so much so that I even try and sneak a few into my winter outfits too. Whether it’s paisley, butterfly print, floral or mesh textured prints you choose, you can be sure to find a whole range of printed designs within the New Look collection (see full range here).
And, the other summer essentials:
Of course, no summer season is complete without a new pair of sunglasses, and a new tote bag. It would take me all day to narrow down my favourites, but take a look at the linked collections and I promise you won’t be disappointed!
